Sanford Travelling to Meet a Minor Arrests


Last week in Sanford, Seminole County the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office arrested more than 2 dozen people in yet another Internet sex sting.

With the most recent Sex Crime Operation commonly referred to by Seminole County Attorney’s as “Travelling to Meet a Minor” the Seminole County Sheriff’s office went to online websites including Craigslist and Facebook where Sex Crime officers either posted a clandestine ad or contacted individuals who had advertisements already posted. Obviously, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office uses an “of age” officer to conduct any follow up phone calls or meetings after the initial contact. Seminole County Sex Crime Lawyer and Sanford Sex Crime Lawyers have seen a large increase in Travelling to Meet a Minor type arrests recently.
